Let Us Give Thanks
A thankful heart, is truly a happy heart! Have you even known someone whose face is perpetually fixed in a sour-pickle frown, or seems to be always shaking an angry fist at the world? How about those who are riddled with irrational fears of every kind? I would be willing to bet money that they are very unthankful, and ungrateful people.
Dear reader, if you happen to be one of these sad souls, or even if you find yourself every now and then slipping into these temporary sourpuss moods, then please allow me inform you of the thrifty and goodly remedy - - it is thankfulness! Yes, I said, "thankfulness."
I can go on and on, but for your sake I won't, my point is dear reader, that we all experience good and bad times in our life, more of one than the other, for some people. As bad or as good as we think our life's situation may be, there is always someone worse, or better off then we are - that is the sober truth. Regardless, if we manage to maintain a genuinely thankful and grateful heart, no matter in what circumstances we find ourselves, then we will be able to whether the storms of life with a much better outlook, and come out of them the better for it. The good news is that gratefulness is not exclusive to sex, creed, nationality, or color, but it is available to all humanity.
As this year wanes and starts anew, it my hope for you, that you cultivate and maintain a thankful heart, unto the Lord ( I hope) for another blessed year, and for the one to come.
I hope you and yours enjoyed a special time of feasting and fellowship, and most of all with a heart full of thankfulness!
